I was supposed to be out this night, but the function was cancelled due to weather, so i decided to tackle:
  • Program: Fit December day 14 took the full 2 minutes rest; also took micro rests between exercises; made several modifications, though not always the same ones so i won't list them; i did do the last set as shown but with micro rests between exercises. So glad to have it done!
I was also unable to walk outside because of the weather, and i couldn't face doing a video; i should be able to make it up later in the month.

I am flying back to Texas to spend my 35th anniversary, which is on the 23rd, and Christmas Eve with my husband and the rest of my kids and grandkids. I am not taking my laptop, and i don't like to post from my phone, so i won't be around for a little bit. I will continue with my early morning workout (the above, minus the snowfight) and am hoping for daily walks/hikes. I am taking a break from Fit December and will pick it back up when i get back on Christmas Day.
